Transmission slips and I researched the internet and the 4L60E transmission has a problem where a weld inside the transmission goes bad and makes the transmission fail. Van was taken to a repair shop and rebuilt a few times the mechanic says a new GM transmission must be purchased at $1,600 dollars.
